Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"White Whine literally saved my life. How, you ask? Well, I recently had a harrowing flying experience. Immediately after takeoff, my flight attendant attempted to give me a business class blanket--in my first class cabin. 'We're out,' she told me. Wow. There's a difference, obviously. I considered suicide right then and there, but then I remembered what was in my seatback pocket. I grabbed Streeter's book and started reading. The book was okay (I'm not much of a 'reader'), but it was enough to distract me from the disgustingly low thread count making contact with my skin for the remainder of the flight. Thanks, Streeter." --Ricky Van Veen, Founder of CollegeHumor.com

"Streeter is so funny that if he were a wine, he'd be a big glass of MerLOL! Yes, I realize that joke is terrible. But not as terrible as the fact that I have to take the case off my iPhone 5 in order to plug it into the Bose Sound Dock I keep by my jacuzzi. That's bullsh*t." --Pete Holmes, Comedian

"From the trauma of choosing the wrong line at Whole Foods to the heartbreak that comes with having an overly chatty masseuse, Streeter Seidell delivers a smart and wonderful survey of all the things I haven't been complaining about, but really should be." --Mangesh Hattikudur, editor of Mental_Floss Magazine

"Only Streeter could take one of society's most obnoxious habits and make it laugh out loud funny with his clever, insightful commentary, and uncanny ability to find the best (worst)offenders. I would say I love it, but the font on my book blurb is too small." --Sarah Schneider, Saturday Night Live
